The study sought to describe the effect of CCT programs on the scholastic performance of 237 students in a secondary school in Naga City, Philippines. Using a correlational descriptive design, the author analyzed the dropped-out rate and generally weighted averages of students. Results revealed that CCT has no effect in reducing dropped out rate and no significant difference in academic performance among the beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries of the CCT.
